Glasgow Film Festival Announces Special Screening

Girl GFF MovieIt’s just twenty weeks to go until the twentieth Glasgow Film Festival and the team here at Moviescramble towers couldn’t be more excited.

This year’s festival will see the launch of a year of celebration for the Glasgow Film Theatre as the twentieth edition of the festival is marked.

The festival has announced plans to host a series of special events as GFF returns from 28 February to 10 March 2024.

GFF is one of the leading film festivals in the UK and is run by Glasgow Film, a charity which also runs Glasgow Film Theatre. Glasgow Film Festival is made possible by support from Screen Scotland, the BFI Audience Projects Fund, awarding National Lottery funding and Glasgow Life.

2024 is set to be a year of celebration for Glasgow Film. As well as GFF’s 20th edition, plans are underway to mark the 85th anniversary of the Cosmo cinema, which opened in 1939 and in 1974 became Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT), making next year its 50th birthday.

As well as being Scotland’s most popular independent cinema, GFT is also the central hub of Glasgow Film Festival. In celebration of these milestones, the festival will present three of their immersive special events featuring films drawn from each of those years.
